Was fortunate enough to get a call on Tuesday with offer of significant merit aid -- he even apologized for it taking so long! Submitted 11/8, complete 11/16.

Numbers above both 75ths with strong softs. FWIW, applied for Epstein Program as well, but he didn't mention anything about that.

Good luck to everybody still waiting! My impression from speaking to folks who have applied in the past is that they take a long time to get back to you, even with a strong application...so try not to stress about it!

I was laughing about how I dreamed I rambled at a million miles an hour about LA and how excited I was and just generally made a bit of an idiot of myself. Then my boyfriend laughs at me and says no, that really happened.

Called a couple hours ago. GPA at median, LSAT at 75th. No merit aid offered in the call. Congrats everyone, and good luck to those still waiting!

You sure you didn't dream about any? :lol:


I wish! I asked my boyfriend and he was just like nope, it was good news but not THAT good lol. It's still early and there's always the possibility of negotiating later, so I'm happy with the acceptance.

got the acceptance email today. Says that they are willing to match other offers for financial aid. So, if UCLA doesn't offer you anything on the phone call but USC, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, etc. do, start negotiating.

Just got a complete email. Im guessing that's as far as it goes until a decision which can be whenever? Is there no status checker?

Does UCLA ding/WL via email or snail mail or both?

For those wondering, calls are the way to go for acceptances (310 #) scholarship info usually mentioned in call, if any.

So if I haven't gotten a phone call by now, does that mean I was likely dinged?

no.

+1. They still haven't gotten back to some people who applied in Oct so no reason to worry yet.

Have any December complete people heard back from UCLA yet?

I was complete 12/7 and heard back last week, but I'm a CA resident so maybe that had something to do with it?

Have most of the acceptances been sent out? For October applicants, if we didn't hear back by now are we SOL?
